Flip flops fun

Hope you all enjoying your summer.

I have made a cute gatefold card using 

To make this, I printed two of the Flip Flop. To get it to be a mirror
image of itself, I searched the web to find a free image flipper.
I then colored them with Prisma Colored pencils.
I put them together like I wanted them to look when the gatefold is closed. What I traced became my pattern for the inside (back) of my card. I then laid it on the middle of some cardstock and folded the ends over the pattern. Once folded I glued each flip flop to the folded ends (now the front of the card). I cut the folded pieces to become the shape of the flip flops. The edges where the folds are, I left most of it uncut. I opened the card and glued the pattern inside so that there is a nice, light paper to write a message or invite to give to someone.




I hope you continue to have a wonderful, crafty summer.

Beach time?

Summer is in full swing and melting hot.

I have for you today a cute project made from Kadoodle Bug Designs' Tropical Kids new cute file.

I put them together using glue and 3D Foam Squares to give it dimension. The leaves in the palm trees were applied with glue in the center and 3D Foam Squares on the ends.

The peekaboo card base is from Creative Kuts July train cards.



The kids can be moved in and out of the card base.

There are so many possibilities for this file. One idea is that he hula skirts or heads could be put on action wobble springs so the could move.

We would love to see what you do with this file.

New spin on Surfing Eagle

I have for you today something with motion.

The file I used was Surfing Eagle .

I did modify it a bit by cutting off the wave so it would work better on the spinner.



The cloud paper came from DCWV The Real Stack 3. The rest of the paper was from my stash.

The magic of the spin has to do with pennies. 
Search YouTube for tutorials for spinner cards.
There is one by a lady from CTMH that has some good tips
on it. It is not my video so I cannot share the link here.

Have fun making your spinner cards
and playing this summer.

Kadoodlebug Designs You Are My Squishy

Today I have created a card and layout using the file You Are My Squishy.
 I used paper from DCWV that looks like water with the moon shining on it.
 I added a tiny bow from a ribbon with small hearts on it.
I use The Ultimate from Crafter's Companion to tie it.
 For the card, I used the extra octopus I had left over from the layout. 
I cut a card and the octopus with the saying All Hands On Deck from the card base and front picture. I also added a bow like I did on the layout.
I placed the octopus up high enough on the card base so that
it was just barely visible without opening the card. 

The paper is Coordinations. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to add sparkle to some of the paper.

Kadoodlebug Designs PTC Spring Chick

I decided to try my hand with a Print then Cut file. I had never done a Print then Cut file. I do not have a printer that can do it. 
So I cheated. I sent the file to a place that could print it for me.
PTC Spring Check has the cutest expression with a flower plopped on its head.


I cut the individual pieces that layered the chick. I then put 3D foam squares on the back of it and placed it on a flower I colored with Spectrum Noir Color Blend pencils. 

Isn't it cute?
Enjoy your spring weather if you are lucky to have it!
